Welcome to Carlton Vale Infants School

School Vision

Our Ofsted 2014 rated Carlton Vale a good school.

“The excellent relationships between staff and pupils provide the foundation for good learning and progress throughout the school”.

 Our Core Values are:

Creativity - Versatility - Independence - Resilient - Respect - Adventurous - Persistence - Problem Solving  (CVI RRAPP)

They form the bedrock of our decision making around every aspect of your child’s education.

Our vision is to create an environment where every learner has the opportunity to amaze us.

Our unique focus on developing the skills of learning along with our creative, active and exciting curriculum enables all pupils to be challenged to achieve their best.

We celebrate, and are proud of, all pupils’ achievements both in and beyond the classroom.

Our staff teams are totally committed to providing pupils with the very best education possible. The teams plan a wide variety of learning opportunities in and out of the classroom that broaden pupil’s experiences and enable them to develop new and exciting skills that round them as individuals.

We believe that the Infant years are the most important in a child’s life and certainly the most exciting. The sense of wonder and discovery as a child sets out in learning is a privilege to observe and to be a part of.

We strongly believe in team work. Children work as a team, with their teachers and support staff; you their parents working together with your child and the school to give them the best possible start to life.
